You can now get Sony's water-resistant 5.2-inch Android handset in Singapore for S$998 ($792) without an operator contract or at a subsidised contract price from any of the three local carriers. And the good news is if you're among the first few buyers, you'll also be getting a Sony Smartband for free.

The all-glass front and back Xperia Z2 comes powered by a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and runs Android KitKat (4.4.2). It shares a similar design and feature set to last year's Xperia Z1, but comes with a new 20.7-megapixel camera that's capable of shooting 4K video.

Those living in the UK and hankering for the Z2 likely won't have to wait for much longer -- despite reports of a delay, the smartphone is still set for an April launch. Sony hasn't said if it will go on sale in the US.
